in the first place. wall street cannot be allowed to be reinstated. it drove our economy off the cliff and people tried to punish our records but they were not the ones that drove off the cliff. yet that is where the budget goes to recoup. it's time for us to have responsible regulation that makes sense. >> thank you very much >> moderator: final question i will be asking. you have three minutes to both answer the question and then make your closing remarks. mr. renacci, you talk a lot about a bipartisan group that you are a member of, 16 members, eight republicans, eight democrats, and devotee sutton you talk about reaching across the offer cash for clunkers. no single party can have all of the good ideas. i wonder what you heard from your colleagues on the other side of the all that makes sense, and what are you doing specifically to bring the governments instead of gridlock to the nation's capital? and i think we split ahead of time, and the first response, final response will go to congresswoman sutton. sutton: thanks very much for the question. i think building those relationships
of bad stuff. just this week the libya situation put the president on the defensive. the economy speaks for itself. so the only place the voters can really see the obama-biden ticket under pressure is in the debates. on the other side we're hoping governor romney will sit for an interview with us. we're negotiating that right now. we'll have an update for you on monday. generally speaking, mr. romney has been more accessible than president obama, but it is true the romney campaign is playing it very safe. at the debate tonight, vice president biden is the experienced hand. he's 27 years older than paul ryan and biden knows how to attack. the congressman is an unknown quantity when it comes to dealing with this kind of pressure. but talking points expects mr. ryan to be armed with panels that might slow down mr. biden who will most likely go after ryan hard. be interesting to see hot congressman handles that. that's a memo. top of the story, four years ago it was sarah palin debating joe biden. >> all you got to do is go down union street and go to katy's restaurant or walk into home dep

the economy around and his passion is to shrink the size of government. he made the compelling case in the debate and did an excellent job. >>neil: is it your feeling, senator, that the economy is going the president's way? many of course have doubts about the reliability of the government data lately but having said that, it such that the obama folks can say, well, the trend is our friend and the republicans can whine about the economy but it is getting better and it is making mitt romney fight harder. >> when you pump tens and hundreds of millions of what the fed is doing to prop up the stock market and commodity prices and the over all economy, look, the obama administration has about everything the government can possible do and we still at 1 percent or 2 percent growth from the deepest recessions we have ever had. this is part of the regulatory policy of this administration is blowing in the opposite direction. as hard as the fed is trying to do it and as much as the private sector is trying to regain the horrible chinament this president, not just regulatory, but climate in te

, how would you describe the jobs economy and right now? guest: this is the weakest recovery we have had since world war ii. the jobs numbers each month, we have averaged around 145,000 jobs created per month this year. that is barely enough to keep up with the growth of the working age population. and it has been a somewhat brazilian recovery in that there have been a lot of fears that we would go back into recession at various times and that has not happened. the overall economy has grown roughly 2% since the recession ended in june, 2009. that is a fairly weak growth rate, particularly after the death of the recession. by many measures, this is easily the worst since the great depression corporate -- the so the weak growth we've had since then has been difficult for the unemployed. we have a lot of long-term unemployed, that's been a record -- in the past it's at record levels. and we've talked about the crisis of long-term unemployment. hopefully it will pick up soon. host: let's take some calls from our guest and we want to hear about your job suation. caller: good morning. host: pl
ryan. our favorite topic is the economy and the question of is it possible to get unemployment under 6%. >> we can and we will get it under 6%. let's take a look at the facts. let's look where we were when we came to office. economy was in free fall. we had the great recession hit. nine million people lost their jobs. 1.7 -- 1$.6 trillion of wealth loss in equity in your home and retirement for the middle-class. >> neil cavuto from fox business. a lot of substance last night but will the debate be remembered for that? neil: i don't think vice presidential debates tend to be. the vice president debating by and large a recent phenomenon. i don't know if it moves the needle. the instant reaction was the vice president won. he got the better of it just because of that. interested the freefall of the president. some of you said that. probably adds pressure to the president now. you have got to deliver in your face game but can the president do that and does it risk for the president to act like that, still kind of in a no-win situation. i got a kick out of the smirk for one thing and paul r
there is we have what we think is a diverse economy. we have a knowledge center in our education areas much like states like california and we were pretty good at job creation at the time he got sworn into office. and he immediately dropped us from 47th out of 50. and in the end that really doesn't surprise you. because when you look at the business experience he taughts. it had nothing to do with creating jobs it had to do with helping investors. i can tell you in my region of the state, which is the south coast area south of boston. our major initiatives he was awol in terms of working with legislatures, so job creation did not occur when he was governor. and when someone else succeeded him, we have come back to that we're ahead of the terms of the rest of the country right now in job creation. there is more to go nationwide and even in our state. but in massachusetts i know we don't want to go back and one of the things that is proof in the pudding is mitt romney never campaigns for president in massachusetts. [ laughter ] >> it's no accident that it is not a battle
debate performance. >> absolutely. the economy is starting to very slowly and tentatively heal. i think things are slowly getting better. but there is not a go-go economy. >> jennifer: right. the bloomberg -- there was a surprise index issued by bloomberg today which says that the economy is improving more than professional forecasters had predicted. let me talk about the book. plutocrats. can you define that? >> i use it to talk about people at the very very top of the distribution, the 0.001%. that in the united states the threshold is making more than $7 million a year. >> jennifer: and the danger? >> two things. first of all to say to people you know, wake up the gap between the people at the very top and everything else is bigger than it has ever been in america. you know, it has -- it is touching the levels it touched in the guilded age. >> jennifer: and implications for the economy? >> the implications for the economy are -- i actually think we don't know for sure yet but what is to me more interesting and more important are the implications for politics.
. on the economy, biden unloaded, attacking mitt romney where president obama had not, on that video tape where romney called 47% of the american people victims who won't take responsibility for their lives. >> these people are my mom and dad, the people i grew up with. my neighbors. they pay more effective tax than governor romney pays on his federal income tax. >> reporter: ryan got personal. >> joe and i are from similar towns. he's from pennsylvania, i'm from wisconsin. you know what the unemployment rate in scranton is today? >> i sure do. >> it's 10%. >> yeah. >> you know what it was the day you guys came in? 8.5%. that's how it's going all around america. >> reporter: for a vice presidential debate, the stakes were high tonight. after mitt romney's big win in denver and president obama's no-show performance there, biden needed to stop the bleeding. ryan was going for the jugular, seeking to build the momentum republicans are feeling. >> the next time you hear them say, don't worry about it, we'll get a few wealthy people to pay their fair share, watch out, middle class. the tax bill is c
start, i want to thank the mayor for your endorsement and support. thank you both for coming. economy. the whole race is about that. we held one of our first jobs fares here because we want to connect people with jobs. when you put a title on a bill in washington that says jobs bill, you have to read the bill. those bills in particular were rejected in a bipartisan manner, and that means democrats and republicans recognize that by taking for under $50 billion in taxes out of the private sector and giving it to washington to increase government spending, that is not the answer. the best answer is to come and put the money in the communities. i went down there today and he did not say, thank you for coming. please take this money and bring it back to washington. he said, go back to washington and tell them they need a reality check. we are tired of the overspending and the taxing and taking more money out of the economy. there are real challenges here. i used to live here. i worked and i lived over there. i understand. many businesses are hurting right now. regulatory tax uncertainty is
into an exchange about the economy. biden said look. igts in a bad shape because you, paul ryan voted for two wars that were put on a credit card then listed off a number of things then said quote i was there and voted against that. i said we can't afford that. wait a minute. joe biden voted both for auj saigs of the use of force resolution for afghanistan and plus voted for resolution to go to war against iraq. tonight on national tv said i voted against that. i said we can't afford that. but wait a minute. he voted in favor of that and both of these things i think are going to come back to haunt him. >> there is a point about libya. what he said about liba. through the state department and intelligence committee under the bus. i'll tell you where we're going see it again that, is at the presidential debate. and there is a lot of criticism of the president he's sort of late to the game in terms of identifying it as terrorism. and now, it turns out tonight as vice president a little bit of a problem with that. i think that is going to come back to haunt him. you talk about smirking and smiling. we
agenda. joe biden and paul ryan clashing on on the economy and the mideast. we'll bring you highlights. plus everyone from washington to wall street is still buzzing about a cnbc exclusive. as the fiscal cliff near, steve liesman sat down with lloyd blankfein, alan simpson and irs skin bowles. >> people won't understand how critical this time in history is. we have $7.7 trillion worth of economic events that will hit america in the gut in december. and in washington they're doing nothing about it. nothing abit. we should be asking these guys running for president and every guy running for congress what are you going to do? >> we're accepting the challenge to do something about the looming fiscal cliff, so this morning we will ask each of our guests about the stakes and consequences for action and inaction. blankfein predicts that there would an huge positive impact on the economy and the markets if a bipartisan compromise is reached. he says he would be a buyer of the market as a result. plus andrew has a great line of corporate leaders. >> thank you, becky. and did you a remarkable jo
the united states economy. the price and economic impact would be much greater if these occurred. we hope that this paper which is a departure from the focus of most papers on the consequences of a nuclear iran or a nuclear capable iran will trigger a new discussion and enable an expanded debate on the topic. i would like to introduce michael, the foreign policy director of the bpc, a former oil analyst to boot. he directed this effort and will review some of the key findings. he will introduce our very distinguished panel. mike. >> thank you, senator. thank you everyone for coming. as the senator said, the purpose of this report is really to trigger a debate. we are not suggesting that we have all of the answers, but we wanted to introduce a new dimension to the debate about iran about preventing a nuclear iran. we are not -- focusing on the economics, we are not suggesting the economic issues should drive united states policy one way or another. but it has definitely come up in the debate. it has been raised, certainly in terms of let us say about the impact on sanctions and military, s
. i want to encourage the economy to grow again. >> so you're repealing obama-care but keeping the good parts of healthcare, social security and medicare for seniors and you're going to build more submarines and destroyers than the pentagon wants, i want to ask you a question. are you a wizard. >> i'm not going to layout a piece of legislation here. >> we can't wait to walk you through all the details math point by math point. there are some tricky--sasquatch tricky--sasquatch. sasquatch, you come here! you come here, no, no, yeti. >> hi there, it's a trolley. it's on the way to the neighborhood of make believe. that's where me and paul ryan get most of our facts from. >> the combination of limiting deductions and credits and exemption as well as the growth of the economy will make up for the reduction rate. >> i mean, do you have a royal family. >> yes, it's called the romneys. >> ha, ha, ha. >> eliot: as joe biden practices for his debate, we'll talk to the person who helped him practice for 2008. currentttttttttttttttttttttttttt nah, he's probably got... [ dennis' voice ]
will. i'll just create a better economy by snapping my fingers now. don't know how long he can get away with this, maybe until election day, but he's taking this position that it almost doesn't matter what he says as long as it sounds good at the time. >> cecile, let me ask you about, when you get up in the morning and worry about the possibility of this election going the wrong way from your perspective of a volunteer for obama, when you really think, and you have to talk to your best friends whom we care most about, when you tell pro choice women what they should fear from the next administration, should it be a romney administration, what is your concerns? what are the list of concerns you have? >> first of all, the thought that my daughters would have fewer rights than i do, or my granddaughters or other folks' children, women would literally lose the right to make their own personal decisions about health care, about having children is absolutely incredible. that is frightening. the other thing that's an immediate concern is planned parenthood. we see 3 million patients every year.
talking about today? are they still talk about differences on job, on economy, on health care? uh-huh. no. no. no. the number one issue that has taken hold more written about, more spoken about more than any other issue is big bird. yes, indeed. we remember mitt romney pressed to say, okay now look you say you are going to cut all of these programs. let's get real. give us one example of programs you are going to cut. >> romney: i'm sorry, i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs, i like big bird, i actually like you too. >> bill: oh boy. it's so stupid just so stupid to lay that out there. this has been a classic republican attack line going way back. i remember when newt gingrich was speaker his number one issue, number one issue as speaker of the house of representatives was to cut all funding for pbs and big bird and all of the rest on sesame street. it never went anywhere. and you know why it's not going to go anywhere? because big bird is too popular and doesn't cost much money. if you are alive, right? you know pbs and enjoy pbs, if you have ever had kids o
that both parties agreed that has to lapse. but at our economy of 1.4 that a tremendous growth. >> it is slower now than when the president justified pushing back the rate hikes. >> you cannot let taxes go up. >> isn't there more justification now? >> if you took economic reality and you took even the democratic idea of economics. you don't raise taxing on an economy that is slowing down to one percent. >> chuck schumer will not entertain that. we mentioned that when biden had that. they had changed the math to make it more palatable. you are saying it wouldn't fly >> if president obama gets reelected. he cannot let the tax cuts for the millionaire billionaires go through for another one or two years and i think he will stand his ground. >> he will say i am reelected and all of his forces behind him. >> it looks like some republicans would let that happen. >> what would happen, he would veto it and all of them would die and he would say you want them back? give me back all of the tax cuts except for the millionaires and billionaires. >> it is different if mitt romney is elected
going on in gasoline markets is the fact that the largest export in the american economy today is refined petroleum products. america is exporting three million barrels of refined product like gasoline, diesel and jet fuel out of the gulf coast but what that is doing is keep, refining margins nice and profitable but it is also elevating gas prices artificially higher than they otherwise would be. >>eric: could you suggest the refiners not sell to the best beller? >>guest: not if it is negatively impacting american drivers and the american economy. >>eric: so you want trade restrictions or protectionist? if you refine it here you keep it here and we make it more expensive for are to do business here but don't sell it anywhere elsewhere the standards are easier to deal with? >>guest: we already have those regulations over crude oil that is produced here in the united states. if you want to export american-produced crude oil you have on get a license to do so from the department of commerce. we ought to at least investigate whether the record level of gasoline exports from america
effectively in this campaign. it is of course a campaign about the economy. everyone says it's about the economy, but even more than that, it is about the future of the american dream. it's about the future of the middle class. and that's very strong ground for this president. people believe that he is fighting for the middle class in a way that they do not trust mitt romney to do. >> can i put forward a theory? >> that is why you're here. >> there has been so much panic since the last debate and i think michelle obama has a better view of this race than some of the pundits. andrew sullivan all by declared this thing over and he's a obama supporter. >> i believe it says here the election is november 6th. >> i've heard that, too. >> and there's a theory there that michelle is operating on. and the theory is that people are still listening and organizing on the ground involves telling people about the president's record to win. and if you look at the debate numbers, the most important one i think has been glossed over. when you ask independents about the debate, 70% said romney did bet
more organized. but it is an uphill climb because the economy is so tough. it's an uphill climb especially after the debate there was extra local attention on that debate. there was so much residual coverage of that in the local media here that president obama's performance and mitt romney's performance played an especially huge role. >> jennifer: you think because of the local coverage coupled with the national coverage you got really saturated? >> that's absolutely right. it wasn't just the national story, it was local radio and television, and there was a before and after on all of this. >> jennifer: there still is. we're still talking about it too. so tell us about the mood of the conservative -- i know you have a radio show where you have a lot of conservative listeners so i assume they are feeling their oats for mitt romney? feeling really good? >> here is what is worrisome, i sense that the enthusiasm is on romney's side. the organization is on the democratic side, but there is a lot of enthusiasm, not necessarily for mitt romney but for the idea
. lights out. ♪ (sirens) (train horn) ♪ vo: wherever our trains go, the economy comes to life. norfolk southern. one line, infinite possibilities. music is a universal language. but when i was in an accident... i was worried the health care system spoke a language all its own with unitedhealthcare, i got help that fit my life. information on my phone. connection to doctors who get where i'm from. and tools to estimate what my care may cost. so i never missed a beat. we're more than 78,000 people looking out for more than 70 million americans. that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare. >>> wrapping it up from here, you know two words we didn't hear tonight? big bird. >> good point. one word i did enjoy hearing was tween. >> yes. and lots of laughs. that is quite something that. is it from us. for us, from here. in danville, kentucky tune in on tuesday for next debate between president obama and governor romney. in new york. >> more is coming up right here. >> and we're coming to you live from the spin room a special edition of hannity. we're loaded up tonight and have a frank luntz foc
unemployment numberings. these chicago guys can't change numbers so. >> and jack welch is right. the economy would have to increase at break neck speed. joining us now to talk about this is the author of freedom manifesto steve forbes. >> thank you. >> do you believe that the numbers are cooked up? especially in the summer time. millions of kids going into the work force and seasonal adjustments in august they did notice that a million kids who normally might stay and work in september dropped out in august. and they should have made adjustments and taking into account the unusual activity in august. they didn't do that. maybe that is government incompetence. if you didn't make that adjustment you get a better number than reality. if you look at long-term trend going back to march of this year. there is no new creation of full-time jobs. almost all of it is part-time work and people who don't want it but have to take it because there is nothing better. that is the shocking thing. third or fourth year in the recovery we are having to defend on part-time rather than full-time employment and th
the ayatollah sees. he sees his economy being crippled. the ayatollah sees 50% less exports of oil, he sees his economy going in a freefall and he sees the world totally united in opposition to him getting a nuclear weapon. the president has met with netenyahu a dozen times. i was in -- just before he went to the un, i was in a conference call with the president -- with him talking to netenyahu for well over an hour, and stark relief of what was going on. this is a bunch of stuff -- >> what does that mean? >> biden: it means it is simply inaccurate. >> ryan: it is irish. >> biden: it is. the secretary of defense has made it -- you can't walk anything back. we will not allow the iranians to get a nuclear weapon. what netenyahu held up there was when they get to the point where they can enrich uranium enough to put it into a weapon. they don't have enough to put it into a weapon. iran is more isolated today than when we took office. sit totally's a littled -- [overlapping speakers] >> ryan: thank heavens we had these sanctions in place. it is in spite of their opposition --

felt better about the economy? the consumer apparently pricking up its ears. the consumer discretionary area was the worst performing s&p sector today, but it's actually done pretty well over the past year. let's look at xly. this includes names like comcast, walt disney and amazon. some say the consumer hasn't done that poorly lately. all right, here come earnings season, yes, two big names, dow component alcoa and fast food giant yum brands set to release earnings in just a few minutes. we have got instant reaction and analysis. david: also a u.s. congressional report naming huawei a national security threat. now the company has come out swinging, defending its practices. bill plumber is the vice president of external affairs of huawei, and he has some very harsh words for congress. he is going to be here straight ahead. liz: yeah. we'll ask him about the competition too. so much to talk about there. but first, we're going to tell you what drove the markets with today's data download. stocks started to slide after that first hour, couldn't recover. all three major indices lower follow
. >> our entire premise of the tax reform plans is to grow the economy and create jobs. it's a plan estimated to create 7 million jobs. we think that the government taking a 28% of a family or business. income is business president obama thinks the government ought to be able to take as much as 44.8% of a small business's income. if you tax every person and successful small business making over to hundred $50,000 at 100% it would only run the government 90 days. we would still have a $300 billion deficit. there are not enough rich people to tax to pay for all of their spending. watch out, middle-class, the tax issues are coming to you. host: joseph is in our jacksonville, florida line, in support of president obama. caller: good morning. i enjoyed the debate. several things caught my eye with vice president biden's. he did a lot of laughing and smirking. some of it was called for and some was not. going back to last week, watching romney tell those untruths, i believe he had to do some of that because the only thing paul ryan was doing was complementing what romney was doing, which
. connell: we showed this number that we need 200,000 jobs a month, you know, in order to get the economy at least get it up and going to some extent again. even that there's some debate on the amount of jobs we actually need per month. you know, we have two different surveys. the 873 is from the separate household number, but two thirds of those were part time jobs. if it comes up in the next debate and romney tries to bring up these issues that i raised with you, how should obama handle it? should he say hey we're on the right track things are getting better or say we have a lot more work to do? >> if i were him, i would say both of those things. he can claim that things have gotten better. that he inherited a bad situation and it is now improving, and the last report was pretty good even on the payroll side because they revised up the two previous months. but on the other hand, we certainly haven't had the kind of plus 200,000 job numbers that you mentioned, that we would really like to see, maybe even more than that to get the unemployment down to a reasonable level. connell: are we o
, that he can take us to a better place, he can deliver us from the economy we all inherited from george w. bush to something better. romney came out best in the first debate because he denied the path he has chosen, denied the big tax cut from 35% down to 28% for people at the top bracket. the all-out elimination of the estate tax, the big-time cut in the corporate rate. he denied his plan to eliminate medicare, denied he would kill coverage for those with pre-existing conditions. he got away without bothering to deny his plan to let the automobile industry to go bankrupt and to dump 40 million people to wait in the emergency room. let's look at some of the latest polling in the wake of wednesday's debate. this afternoon pew released a poll that showed a dramatic shift toward romney. this poll covers the four days since the debate, and it has romney pulling even with president obama among registered voters, 46% even. four weeks ago pew had obama up by nine among registered voters, so this has been a huge shift in the pew poll. the move in the pew poll towards romney is greater among likel
republicans who admire what he did -- >> because he did the economy. >> what he did with the economy. so i think this particular clinton card is being played very judiciously by the campaign. they're going to put him out there even more so. i think it's smart. >> now, if you were romney, would you do the same thing with george w.? would you bring him into the big swing states and have giant rallies with you and george w.? would you do that. i'm just teasing. >> i don't see george bush as an anathema. >> would you bring him out for the big rallies in columbus. >> the president probably doesn't want to participate in this campaign. but there are some spots in town he could probably help. >> how would you like w. out there campaigning for the other guy. >> i strongly recommend to romney that he campaign everywhere with george w. bush. if you look at all the data, people still blame by a margin of two to one the economic problems in this country on bush. so i think -- and the other thing, by the way, it would open up for the president is the very clear case that if you didn't like the bush/che
to our economy. mitt romney knows it is not wall street you have to worry about. it is "sesame street." >> mitt romney taking on our enemies no matter where they nest. >> big bird's corporate masters, yes, he has them, requested the campaign take down the ad saying in a statement, sesame is a nonprofit organization and we do not endorse candidates or participate in political campaigns. more on romney's disgraceful war on children, they declined to participate in the kids pick the president special that includes president obama apparently because he couldn't fit it into his schedule. this decision disces children, but this week he straight up mooned them. as this photo shows here. not really. it is just a weird photo. let's talk about the big bird ad which even liberals at this poit are mocking. you own a commercial agency. does this spot work at all? >> i don't know. i can't get into the liberal brain. i guess that's who they are going for. i think the problem with this commercial and the reason sesame street is scared of it is they don't want people to know they are doing really well
business. we can't be in the service economy, we need to create jobs, make things with our hands. back to manufacturing. back in virginia where i live, the clothes textiles, furniture mills, they're sad. let's build wind turbines facilities. >> gavin: the challenge is people go where the costs are month modest. i think you're right. the cheap china being the thing of the past, and the cost of robots that they're building the iphones and other things, but what about the manufacturing, the value equation for manufacturing in america, still not necessarily where we need to be. there is a legacy cost, sirs as you say, health and pension it's not a race to the bottom but how can we bring manufacturing back? >> president obama has strived--he has had good manufacturing plans. congress has not been a willing ally, which i think is crazy. we're the greatest country in the world. technological, we're so far advanced. let's take the kindle, taiwan came in and bought the whole company, moved the entire operation to taiwan. if you buy a kindle, it's all made in taiwan, something that was designed
